So, today I have a Shepherd's Pie muffin cup meal for you. (Hey, I like that...Muffin Cup Meals. Hmmm...could this be the start of a new series here at The Lucky Lunchbox??) Ground beef with carrots, onions, corn and peas in a savory tomato based sauce, covered with cheese, and smothered in a buttery potato crust....OH YEAH!! That is THE mouthwatering definition of soothing, make-you-feel-good eats. And fall is just around the corner. Shepherd's Pie is a perfect cool/cold weather meal. Let's all say it together now....Comfort Food!
If you have trouble getting your kids to eat veggies, this recipe is a great veggie "smuggler". The vegetables are buried in that savory tomato and gravy sauce with the meat, covered in cheese and creamy potato mash (most kids do like mashed potatoes)....they will gobble this down like they haven't eaten in a week. They're going to love eating out of these little cups, too...kids love individual servings.
These mini Shepherd's Pie cups are really good, Friends. I hope you will give them a try. Recipe can be found HERE.
This lunch is packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.
*mini Shepherd's Pie- These jumbo cups actually hold a lot of food....the perfect amount for portion control. You can find the recipe for the mini Shepherd's Pie cups HERE.
*strawberries and pineapple- A very dear friend of mine gave me this pineapple. Her sister sent it to her from Hawaii....yes Hawaii. It was A M A Z I N G!!!
